Knife showed up. Pretty pleased with it for the price. It is more of a backup camp knife as my other one is 20 years old and about done. This will get me by for the season and I will likely hand it down to my stepson when I get a custom made camp knife done up. Shipping was good. Price was good. Box was a bit huge for the knife but no damage and well worth the price.
I love mine. People complain about high carbon steel (and people complain about maintenance of stainless too) just know how to care for it and it'll last.
I Dont know why dose Mass drop keep useing Asendia USA This is so Mickey Mouse company they never deliver orders when they say that they will deliver the last time they sent one of my orders they lost my package what is there excuse this time
(Edited)
Anyone got a cancelled order?
Too gimmicky for me. Who doesn't have a tinder kit on them when they go in the woods anyway? Lose your knife and you lose your fire source.

Isn't that similar to "lose your tinder kit and you lose your fire source?" You could lose your pack as well. One person's gimmick is another's innovative idea. YMMV

It is an extra to carry nothing wrong with a backup. I lost my glasses on a trip last year second day in and had to hike the next 5 days without glasses. That sucked not having a backup. It isn't like I am taking a huge weight penalty to have a second spark source.
Is the shipping Free?

I bought this knife many drops ago ... does any one know where to get a lefty sheath for this? It's just too awkward for me as a south paw.

This knife is loosely based off of the Mora Companion knife from morakniv. A lefty sheath from them should fit. If not, I suggest making one. It's very common to rehandle and resheath mora's. They are good tools when loved.
Not sure about anyone else. But I bought two. And they both seem fairly sturdy. Used the fire starter and it did what it was suppose to. I will certainly use mine for use outdoors.
Rust WAY to easily. I have 3 of them. Two of them in my camper and I keep them in a sheath so we don't get cut. We use them daily, or we did... just took them out of the camper. You literally have to oil them after ever single use if you are cutting veggies, fruit etc.... these are terrible. I'll never purchase again. I know most guys rave about them... I just don't get it. Maybe it's only for a dry environment. I have over 50 knives, mostly high end.. this is one of the few that rusts so easily. I'd be all over it again if they offered a higher quality steel... this is junk.

Plenty of videos on YouTube that show how you can put a patina on carbon steel blades to prevent it from rusting. A few on Mora knives as well.

I have Morakniv models in both stainless and carbon (Companion, this one, and the Bushcraft). The carbon versions take and hold a razor edge very well, but since they are high-carbon they require maintenance/oiling just like any other high carbon steel. The stainless versions like this one do not rust easily for regular use (but I'm sure they would if thrown into a saltwater tackle box and abused). IMHO, the more "stainless" a blade is, the less I like the edge quality and retention - its always a trade-off. Right tool for the right use...
LOVE it!!!!
Great deal. These are handy for the fire pit
can someone add the 'blades' tag for this?
Morakniv is good stuff. I have one of their other knives and they are literally sharp enough to shave with.
It is strange I received an email that the shipment was delayed from the manufacturer and had unknown delivery time. (Yesterday) I asked massdrop to cancel my order because I didn't want to wait another month. The following day (today) I received notification that my item has been shipped. Was there ever a delay with the manufacturer or was the delay with Massdrop and they were just lying. Clearly they had the item in stock, otherwise how could they ship it even without receiving the order from the manufacturer... I'm not sure I just wanted to share.
Taking a Leap of Faith here, last time I ordered from Massdrop, my item was "Lost in the mail" and I never recieved it, but did get a refund. Figured I'd give another chance
why this item shipped only in USA ... not cool ...

Lots of new knife laws worldwide even city by city it's hard to keep on the right side of the law everywhere.
I have owned this knife for over a year and I take it on every hiking trip whether long or short.
Very light and I the blade holds a very nice edge. My daughter messed up the blade using it on the fire rod but I resharpened it and it is a good as new.
Make sure you use the back of the knife on the fire rod not the blade itself.
I highly recommend this knife.
Once again...no international shipping 😕 Are light my fire preventing sales outside of the US like Kershaw?
justin_moult
Wondering as well. This is getting tiresome if you don't live in the US...
" To create a spark, simply remove the FireSteel Scout Firestarter from the included polypropylene sheath, and strike it against the blade at a 30-degree angle. "
This is incorrect - please use the dull side of the blade (top not bottom of blade)
dwaaash
Thanks! This has been corrected.
be careful with this one. if the flint breaks, you're f*d.

You can buy a replacement ferro rod insert from Light My Fire or drill/file it out carefully and glue in a replacement from a third party source.
It is a great knife for the price if you want an all-in-one but the ferro rod is on the narrower side and the tang of the knife is reduced.
If you want to baton wood or use it fairly hard I would recommend using another knife that has a longer or full tang and combine it with a separate ferro rod.
When I go to checkout, I can't get it shipped to Canada even though it's on the list of countries where you can ship a knife. What gives?
I'd love to buy one! Why are you not shipping this to Norway? Following your link, Norway is one of the few countries you ship knives to...
LeifOstring
Same for me in Canada...
Sanpilou
Same with australia, shame as i wanted a couple of these
How about a fire starter in a lockback tactical folder. Now I'd be interested in that.
Gumbywan

I bought this knife a couple years back and was disappointed and surprised after having read so many good reviews. The knife feels poorly made - weak and very flimsy, like a cheap set of steak knives from Ikea. I'd worry it would break from any serious outdoor use. The fire starter is not very efficient, at least compared to other fire starters that I have - it'll light a stove, but it's tough to get it to light a fire, even using good material. I suppose you get what you pay for. The knife just sits in my car cooler next to a bottle opener and is reserved for picnics and other pedestrian uses.
If you're going to start a fire in the woods/desert/wherever, you're going to have a lot better luck with a homemade box of tinder, or actually legit, not shitty, firestrikers like this. There was an issue with a brand of firestarter very similar to this where the material would dissolve in water. Also, this is really expensive for a cheaply made, mass-produced knife and shitty firestarter. STOP BUYING SHIT YOU DONT FUCKING NEED PEOPLE.

I've used mine in wet conditions without a problem. I can tell by your comment you have no clue what you're talking about. The fact you don't know the difference between tinder and a ferro rod proves your ignorance. The fact you feel the need to order people around says a lot about your mental state.

WHY DO YOU THINK I SIGNED UP FOR MASSDROP?

Just my two cents, but this knife, like all Mora knives, is fantastic at the price. I've used it for the past year as my knife I carry when doing 20-30 mile days. And despite its smaller size it's easy to field dress animals with as well as prep most things a slightly heavier knife can. The ferro that comes with this throws decent sparks and will start a fire when needed, although I typically only use it to start my stove.
